Congratulations! Another school year has come and gone. That means summer’s here and it’s time to unwind. Take a nap, hit the beach, have a barbecue, or rock out to these seven summer jams:
1. Zebra by Beach House
This song is best described as dream pop indie rock. Feel free to lie in the sand all day listening to this song on repeat. We won’t judge you, and you just might discover your new favorite band.
2. Lusitania by Andrew Bird
For all those who love whistling! Who doesn’t love whistling? If you don’t love whistling, now’s the time to discover what you’re missing.
3. Good Vibrations by The Beach Boys
For another kind of fun entirely! Retro, invigorating, and nothing short of classic.
4. School’s Out by Alice Cooper
School may not be out forever, but at least it’s out for summer. Celebrate in slightly louder fashion with this glam rock serenade.
5. Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer by Nat King Cole
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. Dust off the sun and moon and sing this song of cheer!
6. Seal Beach by The Album Leaf
Ambient electronica at a slower pace for easy listening. Good for quiet times: while reading, working, writing, painting, or any other creative and solitary activity.
7. Summertime by Billie Holiday
Because it’s summer time and the living is easy.
